Kranthout: Newspaper Wood

Kranthout (“newspaper wood” in Dutch) is a new product that has been developed by Mieke Meijer for design company vij5.

The product is made from layers of recycled newspapers, which can be milled and sanded like any other type of wood. Meijer says KrantHout is “a reversing of a traditional production process; not from wood to paper, but the other way around.”

The size of the logs may limit it to more decorative applications than structural ones but no one can argue that it is not visually interesting.
